Hedera is similar to Ethereum, Solana, and Cardano, in that it can be used to build and host decentralized apps, though it isn't a standard blockchain: it's based on hashgraph technology.

Ethereum, the most popular blockchain, can only support about 15 TPS (transactions per second). In contrast, Hedera can support 10,000 TPS. And whereas the average gas fee on Ethereum is about $20 and can go up to hundreds of dollars, Hedera says its gas fees are stable and cheap, at an average of $0.0001.

The HBAR token serves dual purposes on Hedera. In addition to powering transactions on the network, it helps secure the platform through staking. The token’s supply is capped at 50 billion units.
